Chanthorn, age 44, is married and resides with her children in Takeo Province, Cambodia. She has four children.
She is engaged in a business as a grocery seller, earning an income of $6 per day to help cover the family expenses. The family is also assisted by her husband who is a construction worker, earning an income of $5 per day. The standard of living has been improved since Chanthorn and her husband have had these businesses.
Chanthorn is requesting a loan of $1,000 to purchase more groceries to stock the store. This is her first loan from CREDIT, a partner of Kiva.
